Eustachian Tube Dysfunction

Long-Lasting Relief for Ear Pain

Eustachian tube impairment means that the body cannot maintain pressure in the ear. ETD (or Eustachian Tube Dysfunction) can lead to persistent, painful ear infections, muffled hearing and ringing in the ears (tinnitus). Only by addressing the problem at its source can patients hope to achieve long-lasting relief.
